Easy (No Oil!) Grapefruit-Avocado Kale Salad | The Wicked Kitchen


One for our no-oil enthusiasts – you asked and we’ve listened! This is a very simple salad that goes down a storm, especially in the warmer months as a tasty side, or as a stand alone dish. Fresh and leafy with creamy avocado and the crunch of green onion, all marinated in a citrus dressing, made with fresh zesty grapefruit juice. Don’t forget to wash your hands, because you’ll be using them in this one.

  • 1 head kale
  • 1 grapefruit, ripe cut in half
  • 1 avocado, ripe, cut in half, seed removed
  • 2 stalks of green onion, chopped
  • Flake Salt & Pepper


  1. Remove kale from stem, rough chop to bite-sized pieces
  2. In large bowl add kale, avocado, squeeze grapefruit juice (no seeds) and green onion.
  3. Massage dressing into kale leaves well.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and let sit for 30 minutes for best result before serving.

To dress this up for cooler seasons, add dried cranberries and pecans, with a squeeze of orange, instead of grapefruit.
